"My warmest wishes to the family. I live across the street from Eda and enjoyed watching her take her walks around the yard as she checked out her flowers. I was always so happy to see the family gathering at her house for holidays. My heart goes out to you all for the loss of mom."

"First, that's a great picture of her. Over the years I enjoyed many conversations with Eda, about Ruby history, personalities, the mail and occasionally politics. She was a great stand up lady, who made me feel good and smile often. In turn, I was granted an extra bonus, when I started coming to St. Gregory's, where I would be blessed with a broad smile and greeting. I will miss her, indeed."
